Space Shuttle-like Craft and Buildings on Pluto’s largest moon Charon?

Did New Horizons photographed a shuttle-like spacecraft and buildings on Pluto’s largest moon Charon that make up a base of unknown origin?

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has returned the best color and the highest resolution images yet of Pluto’s largest moon, Charon – and these pictures show a surprisingly complex and violent history.

At half the diameter of Pluto, Charon is the largest satellite relative to its planet in the solar system. Many New Horizons scientists expected Charon to be a monotonous, crater-battered world; instead, they’re finding a landscape covered with mountains, canyons, landslides, surface-color variations and more.

“We thought the probability of seeing such interesting features on this satellite of a world at the far edge of our solar system was low,” said Ross Beyer, an affiliate of the New Horizons Geology, Geophysics and Imaging (GGI) team from the SETI Institute and NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, “but I couldn't be more delighted with what we see."



High-resolution images of the Pluto-facing hemisphere of Charon, taken by New Horizons as the spacecraft sped through the Pluto system on July 14 and transmitted to Earth on Sept. 21, reveal details of a belt of fractures and canyons just north of the moon’s equator. This great canyon system stretches more than 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) across the entire face of Charon and likely around onto Charon’s far side. Four times as long as the Grand Canyon, and twice as deep in places, these faults and canyons indicate a titanic geological upheaval in Charon’s past.

“It looks like the entire crust of Charon has been split open,” said John Spencer, deputy lead for GGI at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. “With respect to its size relative to Charon, this feature is much like the vast Valles Marineris canyon system on Mars.”

One possibility for the smooth surface is a kind of cold volcanic activity, called cryovolcanism. “The team is discussing the possibility that an internal water ocean could have frozen long ago, and the resulting volume change could have led to Charon cracking open, allowing water-based lavas to reach the surface at that time,” said Paul Schenk, a New Horizons team member from the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston.

The New Horizons spacecraft is currently 3.1 billion miles (5 billion kilometers) from Earth, with all systems healthy and operating normally.

Images from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft were used to create the flyover video below of Pluto's largest moon, Charon.

The “flight” starts with the informally named Mordor (dark) region near Charon’s north pole. The camera then moves south to a vast chasm, descending from 1,100 miles (1,800 kilometers) to just 40 miles (60 kilometers) above the surface to fly through the canyon system.

From there it’s a turn to the south to view the plains and "moat mountain," informally named Kubrick Mons, a prominent peak surrounded by a topographic depression.

Photographer took image of holographic anomalies from a parallel universe?

On June 11, 2019 the photographer took several photos within seconds of his family and other people with a beautiful landscape in the background near Slade, Kentucky.


One photo shows something remarkable, (three) rock or bolder like in appearance and shape while these objects cannot be seen in all other photos that were taken at the same time.


Not only some people believe the concept of a holographic universe but simulations back up theory that Universe is a hologram. Theoretical physicists and astrophysicists have also found there is substantial evidence supporting a holographic explanation of the universe.

Besides a Canadian, UK and Italian study has provided what researchers believe is the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram.


Could it be that the photographer accidentally took an image of a holographic representation of objects from a parallel universe or the objects are just reflections in the camera lens? Mufon case 101069.

Glowing Disk photographed over Peruvian Andes near Machu Picchu, Peru

The photographer who has submitted the image to Mufon states that he as in Peru taking a train back to Cusco from Machu Picchu and was taking pictures of ruins and beautiful mountains.


When reviewing the pictures, he noticed a very geometrical frisbee shaped object in a picture. It’s a copper color that has a glowing/mist coming from. It looks very geometric and not like a reflection.


It is not the first time that UFOs have been photographed near and above Machu Piccchu.

A tourist visiting Machu Picchu has accidentally taken an image of a UFO in the sky above the ancient ruins located in the Andes Mountains in Peru.


A woman who lives in Peru visited Machu Picchu some time ago. After a while she and her friends went on to the mountain when suddenly she saw a weird being hidden behind a rock in front of a cave.


And during a trip to Machu Picchu another tourist took many photos of the site. After back in the hotel she looked at the photos and saw in two photos something that she could no…

Swarms of UFO's seen during Soyuz Docking with the International Space Station

The footage shows the moment the Soyuz arrives at the International Space Station when several unknown space objects come into view and passing the Soyuz and the ISS.


These objects are certainly not ice crystals nor artifacts created by the camera. The most remarkable object is a donut-shaped UFO that appears from the left. Then the object makes various maneuvers while passing the Soyuz.

Next a sphere comes from the right, continues its flight path and passes the Soyuz to disappear into space.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon appears over Mieroszow, Poland

FastWalkers is a code name created by the North American Aerospace Defense Command to classify Unidentified Flying Objects which moving and changing directions at high speed and enter or leave the atmosphere at a great velocity.


Sometimes FastWalkers have been captured on the Defense Support Program satellite system as happened on May 5, 1984 when a DSP satellite captured a FastWalker while it was traveling a 22,000 mph.through space, while Fastwalkers caught by drones traveling at a speed of at least 2,000 mph.

Lately these objects or UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) are increasingly being observed and captured especially by drones. The latest sighting of a fastwalker took place in Mieroszow, Poland on May 30, 2019 where a drone captured such an UAP on camera.

Although we do not know what these UAPs could be, it is quite possible that these objects are secret technology belonging to the U.S. military or even deployed by its adversaries.

Below the footage of the fastwalker (UAP) …
